Jalapeno Popper Dip Recipe
I have been making various versions of jalapeno popper dip for years! When Farmer’s Pantry sent me some of their awesome cornbread chips for Summer Grilling, I knew a jalapeno dip needed to be shared with you!
Farmer’s Pantry chips are baked and they are crispy and so good! I sprinkled their Cornbread Honey Butter Chips on the popper dip! We enjoyed Jalapeno flavored chips with the dip for a double kick of jalapeno! Loved the combo!
The Hamilton Beach® Indoor Searing Grill is an awesome grill! I seared the jalapenos on the grill! I love using the indoor grill. It’s easy to use and the end results are awesome!
Can Jalapeno Popper Dip be made ahead of time?
Absolutely! I have made this dip a day or two ahead of time and just heated in the oven when ready to eat.
Could I freeze Jalapeno Popper Dip?
Sure! Cooking for a big party, make your batch of popper dip and freeze until ready to heat! Place the dip it in the fridge the night before you want to heat it up! It gives the dip plenty of time to defrost. Quick 10 minutes in the oven when ready to eat!
Can I vary on the ingredients to make this Jalapeno Dip?
Of course! Feel free to vary your cheese. The recipe calls for Colby Jack! Try Cheddar, Smoked Gouda, Havarti, mix it up! This dip tastes great with so many flavor combos!
The recipe uses low-fat cream cheese and sour cream, can full-fat ingredients be used?
Sure. The dip is super flavorful with the low-fat ingredients so I prefer using them but full-fat ingredients work fine too!
What other recipes can be paired with Jalapeno Popper Dip?
Mix up your dips, appetizers, and snacks! These are a few of my favorites
- Tomatillo Salsa: A great dip to use with the popper dip for dipping chips!
- Beer Cheese Dip: Another dip that is awesome with chips!
- Pico De Gallo: another awesome, low-calorie dip that is great with chips!
